Black Friday Challenge!

A challenge to everyone out there.  Its Black Friday – biggest shopping day of the year!  I challenge each of you to take $5 of the money that you plan to spend today and make a donation to Percy’s adoption fund.  Just a $5 donation can make a huge difference.  Of course a larger donation is always appreciated.  For just $35 you can get a very cute Christmas ornament with Percy’s adorable picture for your tree.

Please join me in starting the holiday season on a positive note!

Holidays are coming early this year!

Every year it seems that the holiday season arrives earlier and earlier.  If you know me, you know that I have a very strict rule when it comes to Christmas.  Christmas is my favorite holiday of the year, but the Christmas spirit does not arrive until Thansgiving day.  No Christmas decorations, no holiday music, no lights until after Thanksgiving.  When Santa goes rolling by at the end of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, the season has begun.

This year I am reevaluating my stance.  For some reason, the holiday spirit is alive and well this year, very early.  I found myself listening to Christmas music on my drive to buy my daughter holiday dresses.  Jordyn couldn’t believe it – she has been well trained – but she has quickly adjusted.  So it seems that the Christmas trees may be going up this weekend.  I have given in.  I cannot fight the spirit.  I hope that everyone has a very happy holiday season!!!  Let the holiday shopping begin.

As a side note, as you are doing your holiday shopping, please consider sharing some of your Christmas cheer and cash with a good cause.  We are raising money for a sweet little boy who is deperately looking for his forever family.  Help us build Percy’s adoption fund.  For just a $35 donation you can get an ornament for your Christmas tree with Percy’s sweet smile.  Thank you to all who have opened your hearts.

Hello world!

Well, I have finally done it.  After many years of debate, I have entered the blogosphere.  I have no idea what I will be writing about, though I am sure that it will involve my kids, life, advocacy, etc.  I only hope that it will be entertaining, informative or at the least worthwhile.  Either way, I am looking forward to the ride.
